Chasing the Muse Since 1987
Our Mission is to support all writers, from novices to pros. Join us for an honest and lively critique of all forms of writing. The Naperville Writers Group encourages every member to reach their full potential with the written word.
Join our vibrant community of writers at Naperville Writers Group, where creativity knows no bounds! Our weekly meetings are a haven for constructive critiques and collaborative growth, designed to polish your writing. Beyond honing your craft, indulge in the rhythm of verse at our poetry readings and enjoy the warmth of camaraderie during festive gatherings like Christmas soirees and book launches. With a highlight on our annual compendium, your work could be among the celebrated pieces echoing our group’s literary finesse. Embrace the full writing group’s experience from anywhere in the country through our Zoom meetings, or relish the energy of face-to-face interaction at our bi-monthly local meetups hosted by the welcoming halls of North Central College in Naperville. Whether near or far, our group is your gateway to a world where writing and community meet.
NWG Special Event for National Poetry Month!!! Each year, look for info here about an NWG event during April. The event is free and open to the public. Come out and celebrate National Poetry Month!
We have in-person NWG meetings on the last Wednesday of the month and, for the rest of the year, on the second Wednesday before that. We also continue to meet over Zoom every week so you can attend those combined meetings either way. For details on how to stop by, leave a message on our Contact page.
We meet almost every Wednesday night, 7 to 9 p.m., via Zoom and/or in person. However, there is no meeting on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, no meetings between Christmas Eve and New Year’s Day, inclusive, and no meetings on holidays, as will be announced.
